Perogie Party

What can you do on a snowy, cold January afternoon? Get some friends together and make perogies! We make quite a team with everyone at their post. I rolled out the dough and cut out the rounds, R was boiling and making sure everyone had a drink. Our four friends did an excellent job of packing the potato, bacon, onion mixture into the rounds and pinching. There was quite a lot of discussion about technique and form at this stage and R made frequent comments about the lack of productivity from one end of the table. After hours of work and laughter we sat down to a lovely dinner and then the doorbell rang. Some friends that knew about our get together but had a commitment with their daughter showed up, their timing was impeccable. So we added a couple more chairs and had a lovely evening. Everyone took some perogies home, even the two late comers because we're nice, and we made plans to do it again next year.
